1 Honoraria and Reimbursements for Item Reviewers and Educator Leader Cadre Members Governing Board April 3, 2012 Tamara Reavis (DC) and Doug Sovde (Achieve) 1

2 Background Proposals Discussion and Vote Overview 2

3 At the request of several states, an ad-hoc task force was formed to study the following question and make recommendations to the leadership team “Should PARCC support states in providing honoraria to K-16 educators and reimbursements to districts for K-12 substitutes for item review and ELC participation? If so, at what amount(s)? Process 3

4 Members considered available data on current practices in states, and budget implications Process 4

5 Data were gathered from PARCC states regarding current practice Data: Item Review 5

6 Educators should be supported for these purposes. Meetings occurring during July or August are considered to be off-contract for K- 12 educators*. Support for ELC members for in-state activities is provided by the state. All K-16 participants receive a stipend during off-contract days. Reimbursement estimates for substitutes only include those for K-12 educators. Stipends and reimbursements are not accounted for professional development virtual convenings and non-PARCC facilitated in-state meetings. While some states have year-round schools which do not fit this structure, this general assumption is made for cost modeling purposes. Budget Implications: Assumptions 6
